A Look Up Minimal Art Photograph of the Side of a Covered Terrace, shot with Canon 6D Mark II Camera and 100 mm lens.


This shot was captured near Chaisa Cafe behind Mahaveer School, MI Road. I was on the 100 mm Macro Lens.

What motivated mere here was the Clear Blue Sky and the Brown/Yellow Part of the Covered Terrace. These two colors we contrasting well and the Squares(simple geometry) in the Acrylic Roof added further interest.

To make the frame look simple, I very conveniently left Negative Space on the Top and to the Right side of the frame.

  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/7.1

A Black and White Minimal Art Picture of a Water Pipe running across a Textured Wall. 


This shot was captured outside a Telephone Booth. The walls outside were painted Red, Orange and White. I caught hold of the Orange and White Patch here.

I shot the intersection of the two colors, Orange and White. I kept the White Section on the right, fitting it into the Rule of Thirds area and the larger orange section to the left. Then, during editing, I converted the picture into Black and White.

This Minimalist Photo falls under Minimalism as Simple Geometry. Simple Geometry here being the Lines, namely: a) The Line formed by the Water Pipe running across the wall and b) The Vertical Line formed where the intersection of the different colored walls happen.

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of a Raindrops on a Wall.


As they say, make the best of whats available, I captured this Minimalist Photograph in my house. Last Sunday, I was all set to go out for a photowalk, but it started drizzling and therefore I decided to stay back. 

Since I only shoot in Sundays, I decided to switch to Plan B and that plan was to mount my Camera with the Macro Lens that I have and shoot Macro Minimalist Photography in my home/garden.

So What's different in the Composition? 

What I did here was to add that White Horizontal Bar on the Top of the frame, according to the Rule of Thirds. And all the Water drops are rolling downwards forming Vertical Lines.

The Art here is, that all the Lines formed by Raindrops (Water Drops) are Vertical and there is only one Horizontal Line, and that on is going across.

This wall is from the Car Parking Passage. EXIF Data of the photo is below.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/4.5

  • Shutter Speed: 1/200 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-800

  • Focal Length: 100 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the Raindrops Minimalist Photograph.

A Black and White Minimalist Photograph of White Paint Lines and a Black Square at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur.


This is near the Main Entrance Door at Jawahar Kala Kendra. Actually, I have cropped the shot a lot here to redo the frame composition.

To be honest, I transformed it from a Landscape Photograph to a Portrait one via cropping. I realized that cropping the frame this way, improved the composition and balance of the elements within the frame.

I had shot this Photograph in both Black and White and Colored Mode, but I chose the Black and White Photograph to edit because, if I were to edit the colored picture, I would have been tempted to keep that one. Also because lately, I am trying to publish as many Black and White Minimal Art Photographs as I can.

To get back to the Composition of the Photograph, this Minimalist Photograph falls under the Minimalism as Simple Geometry category under Minimalist Photography Types as explained HERE (link)

The Simple Geometric Elements being:

a) Lines

b) The Black Square (that looks more like a Rhombus from the side)


Also, now let's check the Technical Specifications or the EXIF Data of the Photograph Below.

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 100 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/16

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 100 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-1000

  • Focal Length: 100 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the White Lines Black Square Minimalist Photograph.

A Black and White Minimal Art Photograph of the Reflection of a Metal Chain in Water.


This Minimalist Photograph was captured today evening at about 6.30 pm, near Vidhan Sabha Jaipur.
I went out a bit late today, as there was slight drizzle at around 5.00 pm. But, since the drizzle came with an assurance of  Water Puddles, I was OK with it.

Its not easy to find reflections of appropriate subjects in Puddles of Water, as it takes a lot of bending, looking, staring at them in public and getting all the attention and questions from strangers.

Before finding this, I looked at about 15-18 water puddles. 

So why did I choose this Water Puddle?

/i did so because,

a) here the subject aka the Metal Chain's reflection in water was very clear

b) Subject was at an appropriate height.

c) Because the chain was making a curve.

Well, what else I could have asked for? 

I originally shot this in Monochrome. I did not elevate the Photograph much during editing because I wanted to keep the photograph a touch less bright.


The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 6D Mark II

  • Lens: Canon 24-105 mm Prime Lens

  • F-stop: f/13

  • Shutter Speed: 1/ 320 sec.

  • ISO speed: ISO-2500

  • Focal Length: 80 mm

  • Metering mode: Spot

  • Exposure program: Manual

Hope you enjoyed the Metal Chain Reflection Minimalist Photograph.
